BRITNEY SPEARS has escaped a misdemeanor hit-and-run charge, after it was dismissed in a California court.
The star allegedly smashed into a parked car in a private parking lot in the San Fernando Valley on 6 August (07) in Los Angeles while driving without a valid license.
Earlier this month (Oct07), Spears impressed the vehicle’s owner Kim Robard-Rifkin by offering a personal apology and $1,000 (#500) in compensation – which caused the charges to be dismissed in a Van Nuys court.
Spears’ lawyer J. Michael Flanagan says Robard-Rifkin “is very sympathetic toward Britney and hopes the best for her.”
But it’s not the end of legal troubles for the troubled star – Spears has been ordered to appear in court on 26 November (07) over the charges of driving without a valid California driver’s licence.
According to Flanagan, L.A. City Attorneys plan to seek a probation term and fine against the singer.
